New measures on alcohol

Offences to combat underage drinking in public came into force earlier this month, making it an offence to give or make alcohol available to a child or young person for consumption in a public place.

It is already against the law to buy alcohol for a child. This new offence closes a loophole to ensure that supplying alcohol to a child in public is also covered.

The provision is part of the alcohol licensing section of the Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2015. Other measures now in force include:

  • A ‘fit and proper person test’ will now form part of the alcohol licensing regime
  • Licensing boards will be required to produce an annual income and expenditure report on their alcohol licensing activities to increase their accountability and transparency.
